On August 29, a movie about the legendary Cantinflas will premiere in the U.S. It’s another offering from the folks at Pantelión/Lionsgate, the same Televisa-backed production partnership that brought you the César Chávez movie.


Here is the trailer, which features Spanish-born actor Óscar Jaenada as Cantinflas. Yeah, that’s The Sopranos’ Michael Imperioli as well.

So far, the online reaction has been quite positive, with over 41,000 Facebook shares of the trailer, posted on June 12.
